COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust porter is smooth, chocolaty & sessionable. Medium bitterness, mild hop flavor & layers of malt make it easy to rock the block to the "dark side."

Reminds me of a mix between Left Hand’s Milk Stout and Southern Star’s Buried Hatchet. A smooth complex mix of sweet chocolate and malt flavors. Feels a little heavy but light on the alcohol.

SPDickerman (920) - Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours dark mahogany with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and hints of roast. Taste is chocolaty, roasty hints, and a touch of pine. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Four Corners Block Party finishes with a supple sweetness.

Steverus0 (147) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Roasted malt nose with the black porter and light, diminishing head are pretty standard here. A robust and effervescent mouthfeel leaves this brew pleasant and sessionable. Hop bitterness meets sweet roasted malts in the back of the palate. Not as clean as some of those with a good use of those clean but light crystal malts, but a good brew nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extra from Errl-thanks, Chris! Love the pop-the-whole-top can pull. Light roasty and caramel malt aromas. Light chocolate with a bitter finish. Solid. Would happily drink several of these on an early fall evening or something.
